This book was released on 2006-11-03 with total page 68 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This two volume NAO report examines the recruitment and retention of armed forces personnel. As of July 2006, the trained strength of the armed forces stood at around 180,690, with an estimated shortfall of 5,170 against the Departments requirement. Overall the armed forces are not in manning balance, with the figures masking a wider shortage of trained personnel within a range of specific trade groups across all three services. All three services expect to be within manning balance by April 2008, though historically the services have consistently run below the full manning requirement. The NAO has identified 88 operational pinch point trades where there is insufficient trained strength to perform operational tasks. The report sets out a number of conclusions and recommendations, including: that the Department should review overall manning requirements within individual operational pinch points and also develop guidelines on the expected levels of voluntary outflow for individual operational pinch points; regular surveys of personnel should be carried out, focusing on factors that reduce retention; the Department should also assess the impact of the work/life balance and the extent to which breaches of individual harmony may be understated; further, the Department should look to investigate measures to provide greater stability and certainty of work patterns for personnel between operational deployments; also that a cost effective analysis should be conducted on the payment of financial retention incentives and the impact on decisions to continue serving in the armed forces; the Department should also review the scope of schemes which provide opportunities to offer competitive salaries, and consider the recruitment to a wider range of trades than is currently the practice; the Department should also develop a clear order of priority for the wide range of long-term projects it has planned and commit to firm timescales and funding programmes for the most important. A companion volume (HC 1633-II, session 2005-06, ISBN 0102943575) is available separately which contains case studies and detailed survey results.

This book was released on 2012-02-01 with total page 626 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : A snapshot in time. After thousands of hours of research and data entry over a 35-year period, the information on the disposition of some 25,000 US Navy, US Marine Corps and US Coast Guard aircraft needs to be published. These aircraft mainly represent those built and lost during World War II - between 7 December 1941 and 15 August 1945 - but this book also contains aircraft built before WWII that were lost during WWII or disposed of after WWII (lost during the Korean War, lost on training exercises, sold to private investors, currently located in museums and even some still proudly sitting as "gate guards" across the US, etc.).
Download PDF or read online Target Book by Michael Slackman and published by Random House. This book was released on 2012-03-31 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : In this extremely vivid account of the Pearl Harbor attack, Michael Slackman takes us right through the course of events. He starts by scrutinising the circumstances and decisions that prompted the attack and left the United States so unprepared, looking at Japan's objectives in South-East Asia, the political and economic developments which drew them into conflict, and at American strategic thought. The core of the book, however, concerns the events of 7 December 1941 itself, as seen through the eyes of both Japanese and American participants, Slackman recounts the experiences of these people and included stories and anecdotes from over a hundred interviews with survivors. His use of contemporary documents and firsthand personal accounts presents us with a remarkably intense and detailed telling of the attack. He goes on to examine the aftermath of Pearl Harbour and all its consequences. While it was a short-term success for the Japanese, the attack led to the end of American isolationism and changed the course of the war. With its central focus on the unfolding human drama and its succinct analyses of the events before and after the attack, Target: Pearl Harbor is an absorbing and detailed account of one of the most significant days of the Second World War.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : During the Second World War the Corinth Canal assumed an importance disproportionate to its size. It was the focus of numerous special Allied operations to prevent oil from the Black Sea reaching Italy, to delay the invasion of Crete and severing the vital German supply lines to Rommel's Army in North Africa.German airborne forces occupied the Canal to cut off the ANZAC retreat and Hitler needed the Canal kept open to maintain control of the Aegean Sea. Were this lost, he feared Turkey entering the War on the Allied side.Target Corinth Canal unearths a treasure trove of facts on the little known operations by SOE and other special force units. Heroes such as Mike Cumberlege emerge from the pages of this splendid work of military history.
Download PDF or read online On Target Book by Richard G. Davis and published by Department of the Air Force. This book was released on 2002 with total page 385 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Advise and Dissent is the personal odyssey of James Abourezk, from his coming of age as the son of Lebanese immigrants in South Dakota, through his hardscrabble days as a farmhand, bartender, bouncer, and cook, to his entrance into and voluntary exit from the U.S. Senate. His is a quintessentially American story that entertains as it challenges the thinking of our nation. Abourezk refused to compromise his beliefs. He championed Native American self-determination and demanded the creation of a Palestinian state. He challenged the flow of special interest money through political action committees and tried to overthrow the structure that keeps small farmers in an economic stranglehold. His memoir takes the reader on a remarkable and wise tour through the corridors of power. At a time of waning public confidence in government, he makes us realize the importance of participatory democracy.

Download PDF or read online Ministry of Defence Annual Report and Accounts 2004-05 Book by Great Britain: Parliament: House of Commons: Defence Committee and published by The Stationery Office. This book was released on 2006-04-20 with total page 78 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This report analyses MoD's annual report and accounts 2004-05 (published in October 2005 - later than planned - as HC 464, session 2005-06, ISBN 0102935424) which combines MoD's annual performance report and the consolidated departmental resource accounts. Overall MoD's performance against its seven Public Service Agreement (PSA) targets has been mixed: three were "met", two were "partly met", one was "on course" to be met, and one was "not yet assessed". On recruitment and retention (partly met) all three armed services are suffering from critical shortages in various specialist trades, including aircrew and medical personnel. Although MoD reported £400m of savings in the operating costs of the Defence Logistics Organisation, the Committee criticizes the fact that not all of them could be validated. On procurement, MoD did not meet the targets relating to project time slippage. Cost decreases of £699 million were reported on the top 20 major defence equipment projects, but much of this was a result of cuts in the numbers of equipment ordered or in the capability of equipment. Losses reported in MoD's Financial Accounts totalled some £400 million, a lower figure than the previous year but still a substantial sum. Reported losses on the Landing Ship Dock (Auxiliary) programme, which involves the procurement of four transport ships, were some £100 million and further losses might arise. Another loss totalling £147 million related to a building project at the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston. The building was unable to meet the requirement and no other use could be found for it. It is another example of substantial waste which has to avoided in the future.
